international community into this game. that includes russia, which has been on the sidelines actually arming the syrian government until now, but hopefully russia, no one wants to see syria use, again it was reported in 1982 that hall fa al assad used chemical weapons on his people. our government again is reported to be moving to recognize this more unified opposition. the fact that it exists is partially a credit to secretary of state clinton, but also to egypt and other neighbors who have pushed for this to happen. its headquarters is currently in cairo, by the way. and so if this happens and if the international community focuses i think there is finally a chance of a -- not just a way for the end of this -- the assad regime to be achieved, but for a responsible government to move into its place. >> and now let me ask you, move you to the israeli/u.s. relationship, because israel has now taken one more step, first last week as we reported they took a key step in deciding to build this e-1 settlement which if they were to proceed, is a red line, i know that the british have warned them th

don't think we know. i think it is unclear. certainly you heard russia this week sort of seeing the writing on the wall. maybe our great ally isn't going -- isn't going to stay maybe assad will fall. those were the strongest words we heard, which is another indication that might happen. >> martha, you talked about retribution and the fact all sides will destroy everything in their path. side gets cornered and there's talk about chemical weapons. is that in play, he could use chemical weapons? >> i think that is the absolute key here. two weeks ago -- it was two weeks ago, right, chemical weapons, the u.s. intelligence spotted the syrian regime putting chemicals, putting precursors of chemicals in actual bombs and they were near airfields and that scared everybody. that's the day you saw president obama come out. intelligence in the last couple of weeks since then, they aren't as worried but those chemicals can last in those so i think that threat is out. there's nothing that scares the u.s. more than that. he would probably if he used chemical weapons and was backed into a corne
